Do you know of any good DIY guide (like this one) to replace rotors?
I am not aware of a DIY, but check the E90 DIY page. They might have some. You'd have to remove the carrier, and the rest should be fairly straight forward. You do need to raise the car high to be able to comfortablely remove the larger nuts holding the carrier in place though.

A few short cracks is OK. I would keep an eye on them. When they spread around and you can easily catch them with your finger, it's time to replace them.
